Who is One Player You Always Wish Played for the Giants?

Anakim : 4/6/2021 9:20 pm
Caveat: you can't say a HOFer or a future HOFer. Be creative!





For me, it's Chad Ocho Cinco. He's one of my favorite players to never play for the Giants (probably second behind Curtis Martin). Would've been so much fun if he was a Giant. Such a fun guy and an easy guy to root for.

It was there for the taking. It no would’ve created the most dominant front 7 in league history and likely led to more Super Bowls.
Osi just beat me to it  
gersh : 4/6/2021 9:36 pm : link
Here’s the history

Thirty years ago, the 1984 USFL supplemental draft was held, giving NFL teams the chance to grab the rights to a player from the upstart league if it folded, the player finished his time in the USFL or was released.

The Giants had the third pick and, as Myers wrote, "Parcells lobbied Young to take White of the Memphis Showboats. ... But the Giants' offensive line was a mess and Young wanted offensive tackle Gary Zimmerman, who was playing for the Los Angeles Express." Because Parcells was almost fired in his first year with the franchise, he "didn't have much clout in the organization at that point."

You might know the rest. If not: The Eagles had the next selection and took White after the Giants took Zimmerman, who didn't want to play for New York and was eventually traded to the Vikings. White logged 13 sacks in his rookie year with the Eagles in 1985 and ended up with 198 for his Hall of Fame career.

I was actually thinking that Tamba Hali was drafted after Kiwi but that wasn’t the case. I went with the next best edge player who might’ve even been better than Hali and was certainly a beastly pass rusher.

Imagine the ‘07 pass rush with Dumervil on top of what they already had? That’s basically 2 Osi Umenyiora’s right there which would’ve helped the pass rush when the real Osi went down in ‘08 and Strahan retired.

Were the Giants LBers and playing poorly and/or hurt, I remember wishing we had a stud like Lance Briggs.

Charles Tillman and Devin Hester are 2 other Bears players from that era that I wish this team had. Hester might be a HOFer with his insane return game, Tillman was a turnover machine with his patented strip of the WR that led to a fumble. He had 10 forced fumbles and 3 pick-sixes in 2012! Underrated CB from that era.
funny about Barrett Green  
KDavies : 4/6/2021 10:14 pm : link
second time I’ve heard his name recently. I was getting stuff cleaned up in our old house, while getting it ready to sell. A man came buy to look at the house who was renting in the neighborhood. He was Joe Green, Barrett’s father. Played for the Giants in the early 70s. Real nice guy

Kiwanuka sacrificed his development and career playing out of position all over the place to help this team get 2 rings. I can't compare him to anybody, and he's always a Giants great to me.

Just so they wouldn't have to play against them.

I just keep going back to if Nosferatu had taken Reggie White instead of Gary Zimmerman. LT and White on the same D would have been worth a couple more SBs I think.

But I always wanted him on our team. Loved his size snd athleticism. Had a great personality, smart, work ethic, and did all the dirty work up front for his team. James Harrison and Terrell Suggs; either would’ve been the best LB since early 90s and I love enforcers. Any TE who reliably moves the sticks and produces like Dallas Clark.

Currently active, Josh Allen. I really liked him as Eli’s replacement and think they’re going to be competitive for years with him at the helm.

I think Aaron Donald is as big a miss as Reggie White, in each’ s era. That’s my all time remote thrower. Not, coincidentally, the last time I got invested in drafting a particular player.
Devin Hester

Kiwi wasn’t bad, but calling him a Giants great is a little much. I thought he was great in college and was hoping he could replicate that level in the pros but it wasn’t meant to be. I do agree that the team did him no favors by moving him around on D due to a lack of talent at LB, but he just ended up as a minimal impact tweeter on the pro level.

I would've had trouble rooting for him if he was with the Giants.

Include me with those who say Tom Brady (with no disrespect to Eli). Calvin Johnson would've been nice. And Gronkowski too, although the injuries would've been frustrating.

Aaron Rodgers would be my top choice on production alone, but he's a hard guy to like. He's not a bad guy, but he has zero charm.

Ware will be on the HoF ballot for the first time in 2022. He is likely to make it very quickly. That's the only reason he wasn't on my list.

Another Cowboy worth mentioning is Jay Novacek. At a time when Giant TEs all had stone hands, Novacek inspired a lot of envy. He was also money in the postseason, when Dallas couldn't just pound the ball with Smith. He wasn't a terrible blocker, either; that just wasn't his primary job.

arniefez : 4/7/2021 8:47 am : link
I know the OP said no HOFers. But passing on Reggie White was the worst decision of my Giants lifetime which dates to Super Bowl I and that covers a lot of ground.

George Young was a major reason the Giants won two Super Bowls with Parcells as coach. No way they could have done it without him in my opinion. He was the perfect person at the perfect time. But I also believe that passing on Reggie White left a few on the table.

Trust me I know the entire story and I know the Giants needed OL help more than defensive help and I know Zimmerman dared Young to choose him which his stubbornness and distain for players asserting any kind of independence guaranteed he would be the choice but I also know that Parcells wanted Reggie White badly and if he and Belichick got him with LT in his prime and the rest of the Giants defense at that time they would have been a dynasty to rival the Packers in the 60's and the Steelers in 70's.

I know Young played a significant role in our reversal of fortunes from the dark years of the late 60s and 70s, but GD. Some of his decisions. His contempt for Parcells and Belichick hurt this team so badly post-XXV, plus his lack of understanding for the salary cap.

I wonder if some of this stuff is why it took him so long to get into the HoF (still well-warranted, btw).

but to Anakim's inquiry, Tom Rathman would have fit right in with the Giants. I loved Carton, but Rathman was also a great blocker but could do so much more as a receiver.
Not a HOF

Anquan Boldin. There were always those rumors of a trade.
Is Bobby Wagner a HOF guy.

I know he played briefly. I just wish his career wasn’t cut short, unbelievable talent, skill, heart and drive! Such a good kid, too! Wonder how he’s doing?
Randy White

The Giants traded their first draft pick in 1975 to Dallas in exchange for QB Craig Morten. Dallas chose Randy White - all pro seven times - the Manster

Keith Byars: his hit on Pepper Johnson still makes me cringe. Bill Parcells emphasized his play against the giants, and his playing style overall. Evidenced by the fact that he took him to both NE, & NY.
Larry Centers: his catching ability was majestic.
Curt Warner (RB: “Seahawks”): loved his second effort,fluidity, and toughness.
Sterling Sharpe: IIMHO his field vision & ability to separate, before his nearly inexplicable neck injury, were unsurpassed. He was also a fearless beast when used inside, before the arrival of Favre.

I couldn’t agree more with the post by “Fstubbs,” (?) and his analysis of the unselfish contributions kiwi, contributed, at a cost to his ability to elevate his attributes.
